Iran, Oman, IOCs study Gas Exports

By John Lee.

Platts reports that senior officials from the National Iranian Gas Exports Company (NIGEC) have met with Oman’s oil ministry and three international oil companies — Shell, Total and Korea Gas Corporation (KOGAS) — to look at the potential to pipe gas from Iran to Oman.

They held a two-day meeting in Tehran to look at cooperation in the project.

In 2013, Tehran and Muscat agreed on a 15-year gas exports plan via a seabed pipeline. The pipeline, estimated to cost around $1.5 billion, will have the capacity to transport 1 Bcf/d of Iranian natural gas to Oman.

We can confirm that Shell is a member in the Advisory Task Force of the Iran/Oman gas pipeline Project. The scope of the work of the project is subject to confidentiality“, a spokesman for Shell said Monday.
